This month, the Design Team has been sharing layouts using the word "Comfort" title.  It took me a little while to find direction with this challenge and then the photo and the paper just came together for me.  All my life I have worked toward bettering myself and have lived by the words, "If you are going to do it, then give it 110%."  In taking some time to reflect, I realize that I am comfortable being ME.  I am a mom to two great kids, a teacher to wonderful middleschoolers, I have surrounded myself with great friends and I get to spend my spare time doing a hobby that I love.  Even though I still have room to grow, I am comfortable with myself.

When I saw this paper from the "Young and Active Seasons" line, I knew that I wanted to find a way to pop those gorgeous butterflies off the page.  So, I cut out the butterflies from a second piece of paper and glued just the middle down right on top of the existing butterfly.  Then, I bent the wings up to give the page dimension which gabve this already beautiful paper, a beautiful effect.
